Awesome ABC Trek with Heli

I had always wanted to visit Nepal. It was on my top priority list. My dream was incomplete without Nepal Guide Treks. I was unable to decide where to trust. Finally, I found NGT and I am fully satisfied since my dream trip was worthy enough. Thank you NGT team wish you a lot of success in coming future.

Nepal Treks Guide for such a Great Trip

We wanted to thank Nepal Treks guide for such a great trip. We only had a week to spend on the hiking Annapurna Range but it was well worth it. Omg, wear our guide was amazing and took such great care of us. Poon hill, though very tough to climb at 4:30 AM was definitely worth it. We will certainly be back! 

Thank you, 
Richard + Michet
